Ten Power Exhortations - July 22, 2018

By Albert Finch · Jul 22, 2018 ·
  1. Our thoughts are actually prayers; they are living and powerful. When our thoughts are connected to the throne of God, they have the ability to create substance in our lives.

    Psalm 100:4,5 - "Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations."

    Satan’s plan is to make us somehow accept, either through our upbringing, our experiences or through Church dogma that certain portions of the life of Christ are untrue or not valid in our case. Every battle we face in life is over the word and whether or not we can build our lives upon the faithfulness and integrity of God.

    Hebrews 10:23 - "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is FAITHFUL;"

    "For she said within herself, 'If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.'" (Matthew 9:21)

    The word "touch" in this passage refers to a "clinging to." It means "to fasten oneself, and adhere to." Once you pour out your heart to Him in intimate prayer, then you just cling and adhere to Him and not let go! Another meaning of touch is to "set a fire," and "to fasten fire to a thing.
    This is how we can become His "firebrands" upon the earth and set our environment ablaze with His glory!

    It is abnormal for a Christian to not have an appetite for the impossible. It has been written into our spiritual DNA to hunger for the impossibilities around us to bow at the name of Jesus.

    "And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their TESTIMONY." - Revelation 12:11

    You must hold fast to the things that you receive from God!
    How can you hold fast to them?
    You hold fast by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your TESTIMONY.

    Whenever we share a TESTIMONY of what the power of Jesus has done -- any miracle, healing, salvation account -- the Spirit of prophecy is loosed over the people who are hearing it. This means the Spirit of God is actively moving on them to create faith.

    In 1 Corinthians 2:16 we are told we have the mind of Christ. This statement overwhelms many believers. But Paul was not saying we’re perfect or we’ll never fail.
    He was telling us that we can think spiritual thoughts because Christ is alive within us. Thankfully, we no longer have to think the way we once did; we can begin to think as He di

    "God was pleased to reveal His Son IN ME so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles." - Galatians 1:15,16
    God reveals Christ IN US so that we might preach Him among the nations -- evangelizing -- DISCIPLING and equipping others for Christian service. Once we meet Christ, then others can see Christ IN US. The life we live, we live by Christ IN US.

    Is there not deep inside you a longing for His continuous presence? Do you not crave an increase of God's love, God's joy, God's peace, God's power?

    Right now, God is releasing a fresh wind upon us, the wind of destiny, to blow us into our PURPOSE and into our CALLING! Winds are the vehicle of the spirit realm. From Moses to Elijah, even to the Day of Pentecost, the winds of God have all played a part in bringing God's will into the earth!
    Ezekiel 37:9 - "Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man.."
    Declare today that the four winds are about to bring you into your place of purpose, power, prosperity, and passion as you are delivered into your DESTINY!

    When we catch a glimpse of this new identity we have in Jesus Christ, we see sin to be the boring, useless, and stupid thing it really is and we turn more easily away from it. This other side has to do with the rich inheritance that we share in with Jesus Christ as co-heirs (seeRomans 8:17; Ephesian 1:7, 11).

    We need to spend much more time confessing, not our sins, but who we are in Christ according to the teachings of the apostles. "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful" (Hebrews 10:23).

    People with a spirit of faith believe God to help them do exploits. They're builders. They cultivate the dry land. They turn deserts into oases. They create something out of nothing. They call things that be not as though they are.

    When people experience Christians preaching the Word without us ALSO BECOMING THE WORD, the Gospel gets reduced to a mere philosophy -- principles to be argued and words that can be wrangled over.
    But when the Word becomes flesh and dwells among them, they find themselves pierced to the heart and convicted in the depths of their very souls.
    Hebrews 1:7 - "Who makes....his servants flames of fire."
